OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

Columbia Pregnancy Center Opportunities

  • We Support Dads! At the Columbia Pregnancy Center we recognize the importance of Dads.  We are thankful for our fathers who make personal sacrifices to support their baby mamas and commit to be active and involved in their child’s life. The Center welcomes Dads to attend our education classes taught by doctors, nurses and health experts teaching childbirth, lactation, nutrition, and infant care. In addition to our live classes, we have hundreds of classes that we can stream to a phone to help build knowledge and expand skills to help dads, and our moms, be prepared for parenthood. We have 11 classes designed JUST FOR MEN. If you are an expectant Dad, we are here to help. Contact us by calling or texting 410-730-3223 and check out our services for men.

CPC Marketplace is a private Facebook group for the purpose of selling household items, giveaways, job opportunities, housing requests, advice on home projects, etc.  If you are not a member of Facebook, the office can post there for you with your contact information.  Join here.

Amazon Smile: The Amazon Smile program is set up for you to shop on Amazon as you usually do, with the only difference that you must start with the website address smile.amazon.com instead of www.amazon.com. When you use Amazon Smile, be sure to designate Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, MD (NOT the one in MS = Mississippi!) as your nonprofit charity, and the church will receive 0.5 percent of your purchase from the Amazon Smile Foundation.  Once you’ve first chosen CPC as your designated charity, it will be selected automatically every time you begin with smile.amazon.com. It’s that simple!
